Church Leadership

Our Pastors

Rev. Henry Bartsch

Henry grew up in the Tillsonburg Ontario region. At the age of 19 Henry heard the gospel of Jesus Christ and was, by grace, converted to the Christian faith.  He and Tammy (1990) are blessed with 6 children and 4 grandchildren.

Hearing and submitting to Gods calling of him into gospel ministry, Henry sought ministerial training in a Baptist college and seminary. From 1994 to 2000, his areas of service involved youth work, church planting, and jail ministry while in Nova Scotia.  From 2000-2003 he attended Haddington House School of Theology to further his education.  Upon graduation in 2003, he served as the founding minister of Trinity ARP (Chatham, ON) and has served there since that time.

Rev. Jonathan Cowan

Jonathan began as a minister for Trinity in December 2019. He grew up on Vancouver Island, BC. Jonathan and Coralie have been married since 1995 and have been blessed with four children.

God has, in His providence, moved them across North America serving His church for His glory. Ordained in the Southern Baptist convention in 1998 and serving for a time in Georgia, Jonathan resumed studies at Covenant Seminary of St. Louis. He was subsequently installed as a minister in the Canadian Presbytery of the ARP in 2014. He has been with Trinity ARPC since December, 2019. It is his hope that God can use him to encourage the church in their union with Christ so that we live as salt and light in God's world.

Our Elders
